This was the most perfect restaurant experience my wife and I have ever had. There was not one iota of the meal we would change.

The best food in Boston and I don’t say that without a lot of thought. Outstanding service as well. A must for any foodie. Casual relaxed atmosphere. It’s gotten international attention as well. On our last visit we sat next to a restaurateur from Berlin who was traveling to a few places in the US to get some new ideas.

This is the second time I have been to O Ya and I will be back again. The food is better than amazing and the staff is knowledgeable about all of the crazy sushi and immense wine/sake list. Every roll was a flavor bomb exploded and then danced around my mouth with every bite.

The sushi is high quality but the portion size is tiny. Other sushi restaurants have equal quality at more reasonable prices. There is no reason to support this restaurant unless you like overpaying.

Been to many sushi places and this place is right there with the best of them. Got the grand omakase and each small bite was spot-on with taste and beauty. All the ingredients used were top quality and amazingly decadent and indulgent: uni, truffle, osetra caviar, toro, swordfish belly, dark chocolate, etc. go for a mind-blowing experience!
